Please Support Your Community News Site's COVID Coverage

The coronavirus crisis has nearly halted the local economy — including media advertising. That means local, independent news organizations such as ours must fight for our own survival while continuing to provide critical news and information as a public service during this unprecedented situation.

The Essex Foundation Board of Directors recently announced Emma Carey, a graduating senior at Valley Regional High School, as the 2020 recipient of The Elizabeth Barnes Callender and Mary Francis Barnes Memorial Scholarship. Established to honor the bequest and memory of the late “Diz” Callender and her sister, who both shared a passion for the community and environment, the $3000 scholarship is available each year to one Valley Regional High School graduating senior or graduate, or an Essex resident who is pursuing studies related to land conservation and preservation at a two or four-year college, a technical school, or graduate school, or taking accredited courses in biology, botany, agronomy, ecology, horticulture, floriculture, forestry, landscape design, or environmental science. Ms. Carey, an Essex resident, will be attending the University of Delaware this fall as an undergraduate student in the Agriculture and Natural Resources program. The award was presented virtually during the high school’s senior awards ceremony. The Essex Foundation also provided scholarship awards for Essex children to attend the Bushy Hill Nature Center day camp this summer. Essex Elementary School submitted the funding request as sponsors of students who otherwise would not have the resources to participate in the outdoor program focused on personal growth and education. This is the second year that the Foundation has awarded campership grants to the school. Supported by donations from the community, The Essex Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to making a difference in the lives of Essex residents by providing funding for needs not met by other organizations or sources. More information can be found online at theessexfoundation.org or by emailing: contact@theessexfoundation.org.
